HTC Ville stars in leaked video with Ice Cream Sandwich and Sense 4.0 in tow [UPDATED]Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Been drooling over the HTC Ville ever since we first got wind of the device back in November? Then you'll want to clear about three minutes of your schedule and watch the video below, which offers a look at both the hardware and software of the still-unannounced Android handset. The front of the Ville gives off a kind of Sensation 4G vibe, and we're also treated to a side view of the device, which is rumored to measure in at less than 8mm thick. As far as software goes, the Ville in this video is packing Android 4.0.1 beneath HTC Sense 4.0, and we can see that the dock present on this device has gotten a bit of a makeover compared to the Sense docks of old.
Also outlined in this clip are a few of the HTC Ville's specs, including a 4.3-inch qHD (960x540) display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel rear camera, VGA front-facing shooter, and 1GB RAM, most of which we've heard before. We're not ones to complain about hearing the features again, though, especially when it means we get a peek at the Ville in action. When will we get the chance to handle the Ville ourselves? With Mobile World Congress going down in Barcelona next month, that seems to be the most likely place for the handset's debut. If the Ville does indeed show up in Spain, we'll be on the ground to cover it, so be sure to stay tuned. Until then, check out the leaked video below.
UPDATE: Well that was fast. Looks like the video's already been made private, meaining that we can't pass the time until MWC by watching it over and over and over and over. We'll keep an eye out and let you know if it becomes available again. Those of you that didn't get to see it can find a few shots of the Ville and its Sense 4.0 homescreen that were pulled from the video by the folks at Android Central down below.
